Guys, I’ve started a short film, which I hope to see light of day for a DVD Pal release. But I really want it in a widescreen format.
I know that the standard resolution for Pal is 720 X 576, but that doesn’t make it widescreen. I did however came across the “letter-box” resolution of 736 x 398. It appears to be what I need.
Is there any issues with this resolution? Something I haven’t considered?
Also, there is something else I don’t quite understand. The resolution for Pal output is 720 x 576…is that the absolute maximum size? Because I hear about DVDs having a fantastic digital output and that widescreen is the prefered version of viewing - I wonder if having it in widescreen would have less resolution?
I find all this resolution stuff a little confusing at times… :sad:
